Loners on Wheels: Boondocking for singles


Many single RVers that I have talked to tell me that they are concerned about their safety when boondocking alone on the desert. Though statistics show that you are quite safe boondocking, I understand the trepidation for those who have not tried it.


A good answer to this quandary is to consider the group Loners on Wheels (LOW), a nation wide group of single RVers, what today you might call a social network, that meets regularly and widely to socialize, trade RVing and boondocking information, have monthly campouts--many of those boondocking in desert locations in winter, take caravan trips, hold rallies, to provide a support network, and to sometimes just act a little silly. LOW has been operating for 40 years, has 51 regional chapters with 2,200 members. It is a fine way to learn boondocking with an experienced and friendly group. Contact Loners On Wheels for more information and for their schedule of events, where you can attend as a guest for a  first hand experience.

For a complete guide to boondocking, check out my ebook, "BOONDOCKING: Finding the Perfect Campsite on America's Public Lands," at www.rvbookstore.com under New Arrivals.
